Following her critically acclaimed debut, Don't Look Back, Karin Fossum's next mystery finds Inspect Sejer at the scene of a brutal murder in a stark, strange town.   Inspector Sejer is hard at work again, investigating the murder of a woman who lived alone in the middle of the woods. The chief suspect is another loner, a schizophrenic recently escaped from a mental institution. The only witness is a twelve-year-old boy, overweight, obsessed with archery, and a resident at a home for delinquents. When a demented man robs a nearby bank and accidentally takes the suspect hostage, the three misfits are drawn into an uneasy alliance. Shrewdly, patiently, as is his way, Inspector Sejer confronts a case where the strangeness of the crime is matched only by the strangeness of the criminals, and where small-town prejudices warp every piece of information he tries to collect.

2.0 He Who Fears the Wolf
I read Don't Look Back by Karin Fossum. It was an average story that has been written many times. The saving grace to that book was the main character, Inspector Sejer. He is interesting and really the only reason, in my mind, to read Karin Fossum books.He Who Fears the Wolf is not about Inspecto...

Though this is the second book translated into English featuring Norwegian Detective Inspector Sejer this was really more of a psychological suspense tale than a police procedural. The actual plot is a bit weak but the book really shines with its insights and descriptions of characters with mental ...

I plan on giving all of my Karin Fossum reviews the same statement because I don't even want the hint of a spoiler on this woman's fantastic work. Fossum's writing gave me my love of Scandanavian mystery writers and I seek those writings out. Hands down,though, Fossum's work is the best I have come ...
